Doug E. Fresh, Chuck D, DMC, Kool Moe Dee On Hip Hop Health CD

HIP HOP PUBLIC HEALTH HOSTS 3RD ANNUAL HARLEM SUMMIT
TO LAUNCH DEBUT ALBUM JUNE 9

On Thursday, June 9 at 5 pm, Hip Hop Public Health will host its 3rd Annual Summit at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in Harlem, NY, where they will unveil the new media and ground-breaking CD, Hip Hop Health, The Album: Volume 1. The album features a collection of health education hip hop music and dance tracks composed by celebrity hip hop artist collaborators. The event will also highlight the core educational objectives of Hip Hop Public Health’s Hip Hop HEALS (Healthy Eating And Living in Schools) childhood obesity program. Hip hop artist Doug E. Fresh will preside over ceremonies, teaching hundreds of children how to "Do the Dougie", along with Hip Hop Public Health’s artist collaborators Chuck D, Easy A.D., The Cold Crush Brothers, Run DMC from Run DMC, and Kool Moe Dee, all of whom will deliver dynamic nutrition and physical activity education.

Hip Hop Public Health was founded by Dr. Olajide Williams, Associate Professor and Chief of Staff of Neurology at Columbia University, in response to the need he saw for innovative and culturally-tailored health literacy programs in high-risk communities. Its goal: to combat the problem of poor nutrition and lack of exercise among inner-city school children and their families. Through school-based health literacy programs and educational multimedia, including cartoons, music, video games, comic books, and live music videos, Hip Hop Public Health uses hip hop music and dance to empower children between the ages 8 and 12 to make healthier choices.
